Rose Show Tips: Have Fun Showing Your Roses and Win Blue Ribbons too!

Come and learn from your friends how to prepare your roses and get them to the Rose Show. We’ll talk about how to select and prepare your best blooms, starting NOW, how to protect them from the weather, how to transport them safely to the show, and we’ll tell you about some new entry classes in this year’s show.

You’ll see that anyone can enter their roses in a Rose Show - you’ll have more fun – and maybe win a trophy!
